It is readily apparent that the energy exacted will be thus returned; that which one reaps will be sown. To receive positivity , positivity must be exuded. Alternately, one may be wholly pessimistic and take on the negative. When people speak badly of others, it absolutely has more to do with taken ; not the party of whom they speak. Hurt people hurt people. Well people do not instigate negativity and it’s ensuing repercussions; of this I am aware. You are the energy you allot the universe; so are others. You will get what you give; what that will be is only a choice you can make.
